A Book of Feelings

A Book of Feelings

Author: Amanda McCardie Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 01/09/2016

A warm, gentle book for young children who sometimes struggle to express what they're feeling. A Book of Feelings stars a brother and sister, Sam and Kate, and their dog, Fuzzy Bean. Sam and Kate know what makes them happy: cuddling Mum, reading a story with Dad, swimming, running and dancing ... lots of things! But they don't feel happy all the time, and in the course of the book we see them feeling grumpy, embarrassed, shy, nervous, frightened, sad and jealous. This book shows the children in many different situations at home and at school, and show how they change over time, how emotions can escalate and how people can help each other. Amanda McCardie's supremely subtle and sensitive text is as alive to the nuances of children's behaviour as Salvatore Rubbino's amazing pictures.

A Book of Feelings

Author: Amanda McCardie Format: Hardback Release Date: 01/09/2015

A warm, gentle book for young children who sometimes struggle to express what they're feeling. A Book of Feelings stars a brother and sister, Sam and Kate, and their dog, Fuzzy Bean. Sam and Kate know what makes them happy: cuddling Mum, reading a story with Dad, swimming, running and dancing...lots of things. But they don't feel happy all the time (nor does Fuzzy Bean), and in the course of the book we see them feeling grumpy, embarrassed, shy, nervous, frightened, sad and jealous. Both words and pictures portray the children in many different situations at home and at school, and show how they change over time, how emotions can escalate, and how people can help each other. Amanda McCardie's supremely subtle and sensitive text is as alive to the nuances of children's behaviour as Salvatore Rubbino's amazing pictures. Shortlisted for the SLA Information Book Award (Under 7 category).
